Frustrated with Judgment.

I'm a little frustrated today. My penpal, a Christian, who is very dear to me attacked me in a recent letter. See, I referred to Jesus as my own superhero. Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE BATMAN. So in this letter to him, I said, F*ck Batman! Jesus Rocks. He thought I was belittling Jesus by referencing Batman... but I felt it was my way of saying, "I hold no other Idols before Christ now".

Then, I referred to God as the Big G. I really can't think of a bigger G. My penpal attacked that too, and accused me of having a Buddy Christ mentality. He said he was against manga and all cartoony depictions of Christ, but I feel as if he shouldn't judge how others may find or get close to the Lord. I mean if some desperate teenager out there reads a comic book with depictions of Christ.. and in turn he investigates this Jesus guy further and falls in love with His teachings as I did, If he gets saved because he first got the idea about Jesus from a comic book, who's to judge that young teenager but God Himself!??!

I refuse to lose my personality or good sense of humor because I recognize Christ. These Christians can be as stuck up about "their" Jesus as they want. I think humor is a great tactic to get others to listen about the Lord. Maybe it's not for everybody... but it is definitely for some.. and I say Let God tell me He didn't appreciate being called the Big G on judgment day. I mean, really is there a bigger G out there? If there is a bigger G than the Lord all mighty, please step forward. Oh I didn't think so.

I would also like to point out that Orthodox Jews NEVER say the G word..and when they write about him on Paper.. he is just a BIG G. Saying Big G does not mean I do not recognize His power and glory. Anyone who steps forth to judge me or scold me should really be concentrating on his/her own sins before trying to pick a part my language. And if you don't like the way I talk, please don't talk to me.

G bless all of you.

  1. You're so right. Awesome post!

    Don't let what your penpal said dissuade you. How you referred to Christ was definitely not meant to belittle Him. I can tell that without even reading the letters. For them to assume such a thing is ridiculous.

    "Buddy Christ mentality"? Who is Christ supposed to be but our friend?? He died for us on a cross for crying out loud! That makes Him WAY more than just a person... Savior, Friend, Lord... Yep, much more. Check out God's Word on it (if you haven't already). How many times did He refer to those around him as friends?

    Sorry, I don't mean any disrespect, but it sounds to me like your penpal is trying to impress their own beliefs concerning the Bible and Christ on you. It's things like that that turn Christ into just another man made religion.

    Be careful.

    Thanks again for the post. It's a pleasure to meet you! You have quite a phenomenal testimony. :)
